Identity Politics

Via the Temple of Democracy, an invaluable resource for tracking the neo-confederate movement, I see the Washington Times chose its assistant National Editor, and avowed Southern Secessionist Robert Stacy McCain, to review a book about Martin Luther King Jr.

This is the journalist who wrote, back when he posted at Der FreiRepublik:

'[T]he media now force interracial images into the public mind and a number of perfectly rational people react to these images with an altogether natural revulsion. The white person who does not mind transacting business with a black bank clerk may yet be averse to accepting the clerk as his sister-in-law, and THIS IS NOT RACISM, no matter what Madison Avenue, Hollywood and Washington tell us.'..."

UPDATE: Oops, my mistake, this wasn't from one of his many postings at freeperville, but in this listserv discussion, dated August 1996.
